Soviet m42 MACRO lens MC VOLNA-9 50mm f/2.8
MADE IN USSR!
M42 mount lens for Zenit SLR, Fujica, Pentax, Practica. Great for photo & video on DSLR via adaptors(m42 to Nikon/Canon etc), mirrorless systems: Sony NEX, Olympus Pen, Panasonic G, Canon EOS M, Nikon 1, FujiFilm X-mount etc.
This is THE ONLY true MACRO lens made by Soviets, focuses very close(24cm), gets to 1/2 life-size on full frame.
On cameras with smaller then FX sensors you’ll be getting even higher magnifications.
Manual focusing is a pleasure – huge metal focusing ring goes almost 360 degrees as you focus from 24cm to infinity.
Very sharp lens, it is evenly sharp throughout the field.
Another bonus feature – the aperture blades form different shapes at different apertures, from circle wide open to serrated saw shapes to 6 pointed stars midway, and back to circle on f/16. This can be used to create very peculiar bokeh.
The lens s/n 864455 is in excellent condition!
Glass is clean and clear, no fungus, no haze, no scratches!
Might have light wipe marks/ few internal dust particles – but nothing to to affect image quality.
Mechanics are excellent, focusing is smooth.
Aperture blades are with some oil on them(does not affect functionality).
On aperture around f/5.6-8.0 creates star shapes from the highlights in background, very interesting effect.
